Wasn't he basically elevated to archangel status as a replacement for Michael when he was resurrected? I seem to remember dialogue along those lines.
No dialog along those lines have ever been mentioned.
When God resurrected Cas the first time, he seemed "stronger" than usual, he snapped his fingers and everyone was alive and well. Now, could a regular Angel have done that? Who knows, perhaps. It is possible he just felt good being renewed and alive again.
At anyrate, there is no on screen proof that Cas is any stronger than any other regular Angel. (obviously he was when he was eating souls, but that is gone now)
